Nanostructuring of Hybrid Materials

Self-assembly processes at molecular level have recently become particularly interesting since they allow certain control on porosity, morphology and nanostructure of materials and, thus, in their properties. In organosilicas, which are hybrid materials combining an inorganic matrix with an...

Recyclable catalyst obtained

Researchers at the UAB's Department of Chemistry have developed a ruthenium catalyst supported in silica gel which is recyclable in alkene metathesis reactions. The immobilization of the catalyst allows its easy recycling and, thus, to save money, because catalysts are expensive and, although they are not...
